Hi Hitch;

On the Android world, you have Readily, Lithium and PocketBook that support zero-bleed imagery (any page, not only the cover). I'm speaking about epub3 and by adding the background image at the <html> level, something like:

Code:
html {
   background: url("../Images/bg_paper1.jpg") no-repeat center center;
   background-size: cover;
   height: 100vh;
   margin: 0;
   padding: 0;
}

body {
/* This declaration shouldn't be neccesary except by PocketBook */
   background-color: transparent; 
}
The plugin BibiReader for Sigil, also can show background images with zero bleed. Here you can watch some screenshots (one and two pages view), with a background image that mimics an old paper (as I said, also is possible to get the same result with Readily, Lithium and PocketBook):

But one thing is that it is possible to include a background image (with many limitations) and another thing is that it is a good idea. I would never include such kind of images.
